Scottish Ballet is one of Sadler’s Wells’ most popular visiting companies. A Streetcar Named Desire returns following a South Bank Sky Arts Award-winning tour in 2012.

Trying to leave a troubled past behind her, fading southern belle Blanche DuBois moves into her sister Stella’s New Orleans apartment. Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be, and sets out to destroy her.

Set to a specially commissioned jazz-inspired score by award-winning composer Peter Salem, Scottish Ballet presents its Olivier Award-winning adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ thrilling play. The company continues to push the boundaries of modern ballet in a collaboration with theatre and film director Nancy Meckler and choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, creating a powerful infusion of drama and dance.
